1,000,000 + Voters Want Walker Out: On Wisconsin!

The sheer number of signatures being filed – nearly as many as the total votes cast for Walker in November 2010, and almost twice as (many as) those needed to trigger a recall election – ensure the election will be held, said officials with the state Democratic Party and United Wisconsin, the group that launched the Walker recall.

Even FOX has to spit out a few nice quotes:

“This is a really proud moment for us…it’s not a party, this has been a really serious movement,” Lori Compas, the recall petition leader, said.

“I can’t believe we did it, but we did it! We got all the signatures,” Dave Solstice, a petition drive volunteer, said. “Now we just need people to vote when it’s on the ballot”

The group says it has collected double the 540,208 signatures required to force a recall — one-quarter of the general election vote that put Walker into office. Even though some of the signatures are expected to be invalidated and discarded, Wisconsin Democrats have the comfort of a surplus in their second effort in the past year to drive a recall effort.
